Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide inmates a bank account for inmate funds and for buying items not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit money to inmate’s accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send inmates money in the postal service and must send funds to the following address and follow the rules shows below:

The deposit must be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and during this period the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have appropriate inmate info but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
